The mantra bhAga which is in the form of udAtta, anudAtta & svarita are
reveletions. That is they are heard AS IT IS and they EXIST in the form
of sabda tarangAs. The rishi through his tapas attains the same frequency
levels and *listens* to those sabda tarangAs that are in the form of
subtle vibrations. Having performed the dhAraNa of those vibrations,
transmits the same to his disciple.
praNAms Sri Sriram prabhuji
And with this we have to assume that yajurveda maNtra-s have been revealed
to some set of rishi-s and likewise same mantra-s with different svara-s
in rigveda, sAma veda etc. have been revealed to different set of rishi-s
over a period of different times. And to our misfortune, today these
mantra-s too in prayOga etc. have under gone modifications and
ritviks/vaidiks/purOhits chanting it differently. For example, brahma
jagnAnam prathamam purastAt maNtra cannot be found in rigveda but this
mantra is chanted with rigvedeeya svara-s, like wise, gaurimimaaya
salilAni takshatyekapadi etc. mantra which can be found in taitereeya
AraNyaka prathama prashna is chanted in saMhitA mantra style without any
vAkya vibhAga and sachitra chitraM mantra in rigveda which you can hardly
find in yajurveda but comfortably chanted in yajurveda prayOga with
different svara-s!!?? It is really regret to note that avichhinna shruti
parampare, nowadays, undergoing modifications in the hands of ritviks &
vaidiks of today.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
